Michele and Nick’s Ashford Estate Wedding

Documented by Berit Bizjak (Principle) & Mike Ngo (Second Shooter)

When Michele and Nick contacted us last year about their plans for an Ashford Estate wedding, we were thrilled!  New Jersey is home to many wonderful venues but one of our favorites is The Ashford Estate.  The Ashford Estate is designed on over 30 acres complete with fountains, waterfalls, gazebo, stone ruins, garden arbors and sprawling views. In addition to the natural beauty of its grounds, The Ashford Estate features immaculately preserved structures, such as a barn chapel, carriage house, and grand ballroom. In addition to the grounds, The Ashford is home to a number of guest suites that are comparable to some of the finest hotels allowing families to reserve the entire estate for the weekend.

Inspired by their engagement at a chateau in Champagne, France , Michele and Nick hosted an elegant event in hues of peach and gray with beautiful florals and decor by Magnolia Exquisite Florals & Event Decor.  We started our day with Michele, who got ready in the Ashford Estate Bridal Suite. Michele’s makeup was done by Makeup Artist extraordinaire, Amy Jones Baskin of Beauty on Location.  As she slipped into her Liancarlo gown from Elizabeth Johns Bridal Studio and her fingertip length veil, she took our breath away!

Given the beautiful architecture and grounds, Michele and Nick opted for a First Look.  The look on Nick’s face was so sweet when he first saw his bride!  Nick and Michele exchanged their vows in front of close friends and family in The Barn on the property.  Immediately following guests were treated to a lovely cocktail hour before heading into their reception which paid homage to their engagement with adornments of champagne corks and bottles on display.
